Leprosy Village An avant-premiere projection of the film Yommedine was organized by the Rotary Club Le Caire Champollion for the benefit of the LeprosyVillage. An avant-premiere projection of the film Yommedine was organized by the Rotary Club Cairo Champollion on Tuesday 25 of September at Cinema Galaxy Manial. This private session was reserved for Rotarians and businessmen and the attendees reached 400. It was a very successful evening, appreciated by all the audience. A short documentary on the Rotary activities and objectives was projected before the film.
The president of the Rotary Champollion, Mr. Francois Bouabjian, thanked Mr. Gaby Khoury for his enormous generosity as all the revenues of the evening were for the Rotary charity projects, mainly the Leprosy Village.
The main actor of the film, having recovered from Leprosy himself, interpreted his role genuinely touching deeply the hearts of the audience. The Nubian boy who accompanied him was equally amazing, despite his young age and having to face the camera for the first time. A real star.
